SCORES OF BABIES BUNKED AT JUDGES. A Great Feature of Bazar Program Yesterday. JUDGES ARE GREATLY PUZZLED But Maek The Award and Then Es caped. Another Fine Program Pre sented Last Night. Miss Morgan’s Old Maid Assembly Tonight. The bazar was given over to the ba bies yesterday afternoon and for an hour these infantile prodigies, their doting mammas, anxious nurses and distracted judges held high carnival there. All the pretty babies in town were not there, but something less than a hundred of the finest came to the show and made Rome howl. It wouldrequire the wisdom of Solomon and the cour age of Dewey or Caesar to describe their finepoints, and ye scribe possess ing neither— Well, perhaps the least said the bet ter from a safety standpoint. But the babies were up for prizes and three drummers, strangers within our gates, were called upon to pass on their fine points. Checking their bag gage, and with magnificent courage and plenty of life insurance in case of errors made, they boldly stepped into the ring. Selling goods to a miser was a picnic in comparison to the job had unwittingly undertaken. Two classes of prizes were offered to the prettiest and handsomest babies over one year ot age, and also the pret tiest and handsomest under one year, making a total of four prizes given. After surveying the improvised nur sery with its squalls, and probably an ticipating a •‘squall” within the ranks of possibly disappointed mammas, one of the judges looked fervently towards heaven and then at the ground outside, mentally calculating. But he didn’t jump the game. They then looked the babies oyer carefully and announced a verdict. Young Henry Lumpkin and young Mr. Bragg were given the prizes for the prettiest and handsomest baby respectively under one year of age, while little Miss Newell and Miss Hooks, the latter the daughter of Mr. W. W. Hooks, were awarded similar prizes for babies over one year of age. The two little kings and two tiny queens were indeed among the finest in this human deck, and the three Sol omons who made the award of prizes were congratulated upon their cour age and wisdom Piles Cured. By using Smith’s Sure Kidney Cure has made a radical cure for me. I suf sered severely from bleeding piles seven teen years, and although I tried every well recommended remedy, failed to re ceive any relief other than the most temporary.

Cotton Market Reached Highest Point Yesterday. The “long expected” happened yes terday morning when January cotton touched ten cents in the contract mark et. It was a long, weary and steady pull, requiring seven weeks of patient effort, but it was finally done. And millions were made by those on the right side of the market. Opening at 9.82, the market ad vanced by slow degrees until the goal was reached shortly after-noon. Then, for the first time since October 9th, January cotton touched ten cents. But only for a few minutes did it re main at that figure. A perfect avalanche of contract sel ling poured in from every quarter, it is said, and almost immediately the market broke twenty-two points. The decline was from 10 cents to 9 78, where it stood at the close%f the session. But this was only the speculative side of the story. There is another, Spot cotton has gone up in propor tion to futures and commands the highest figures paid for it since the slump in October. In the Americus market 9< cents was freely paid yesterday for the finer grades, which price was full up to Sav annah prices. However, very little was offered at this fancy figure as far mers want ten cents “even money ” And it will go even higher than that after the Christmas holidays. Eleven cents, even, is not at all improbable. No Right to Ugliness. The woman who is lovely in face form and temper will always have friends, but one who would be attractive must keep her health. If she is weak, sickly and all run down she will be ner vous and irritable. If she has constipa tion or kidney trouble, her impure blood will cause pimples, blotches, skin eruptions and a wretched complexion. Electric Bitters is the best medicine in the world to regulate stomach, liver and kidneys and to purify the blood. It gives strong nerves, bright eyes, smooth, velvety skin, rich complexion. It will make a good-looking, charming woman of a run down invalid. Only 50 cents at E. J. Eldridge’s Drug Store. MISS HARPER DIED WEDNESDAY End Comes After An Illness of Sever- al Weeks. Miss Emma Harper died at 2 o’clock yesterday morning at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. G. M. Harper, several miles west of Americus. Miss Harper had been ill for a long while and the end yesterday was not unex pected. She- was eighteen years of age, in the bloom of young woman hood, and her death is sad indeed. She was a sister of Mr. Oscar Harper, of this city, and her sunny disposition, sincerity and high character won the friendship and esteem of all with whom she came in contact. The fu neral will take place this morning at Friendship, Many of your friends, or people whom you know of, have contracted consumption, pneumonia or other fatal diseases, by neglect of a simple cold or cough.

In the Presentation Here of Hoyt’s Milk White Flag Americus theatre-goers anticipate with greatest pleasure the coming of the splendid Hoyt company on Wed nesday night next, 28th, and the pres entation of the greatest of successes. Hoyt’s “A Milk White Flag” is prob ably the strongest in point of satire of all his plays. Every element which goes to make up the dramatic and pic torial fabrication of a successful play is well represented in the cynical and musical comedy. Satire and special ties jostle each other in the undercur rent of a well developed plot. While the shafts tinged with Hoyt’s irony are mainly directed against the militia, yet, however, a few vagrant arrows are reserved for, and strikes home with unerring accuracy, the little weaknesses of widows, undertakers, contractors, and others who are char acterized m the play. Tenderness or aching in the small of the back is a serious symptom. The kidneys are suffering. Take Prickly Ash Bitters at once. It is a reliable kidney remedy and system regulator and will cure the trouble before it de velops its dangerous stage. Dr. E. J. Eldridge. Americus Cotton Market. Americus, Ga., Nov. 21, ll»00.

I was troubled with severe female weakness for over six months. I was treated by six very prominent physicians without any marked benefit* My last doctor was skilled specialist, and he told me the only hope lay in an operation.

CAMPAIGN WARMEST KNOWN Mayor, Three Aidermen and Clerk Must Be Chosen and the Contest For the Offices Will Be Spirited With Result in Doubt Until Announced. Today the “battle of ballots” will be fought to a finish at the polls, and the democratic voters will thus determine the selection of mayor, three aidermen and clerk for the next two years. For weeks past the campaign has been warmly waged, and interest now is at highest tension. Eleven good citizens have offered for positions of honor and trust in the administration of affairs municipal, and it is to be re gretted that there is not room for all these aspirants. The high position of mayor is to fill ed for the fall term of two years, while three members of the council and a city clerk and treasurer are likewise to be chosen for a like term of years. For the office of mayor there are three entries, Messrs. John B. Felder, W, F. Glarke and W. P. Wallis. All are well known, upright and honorable men, and whoever may be honored by the democratic voters today the inter ests of Americus are safeguarded and the people satisfied. They have each made an active and aggressive campaign and are equally confident that success will be theirs at at the polls. Next in interest comes the seven sided aldermanio contest, and the man who can predict the result in this race is entitled to the Presidency or any other office he may desire. The entries here are Messrs. W, E. Brown, G. W. Glover, A. T. Oliver, Lynn Fort, J. E. Cameron, E. A. Lock ett and B. H. Mayo. That’s the list seven of ’em—and the voter who can not pick three good men from this number would indeed be hard to please. Good men they are. But only three can be chosen of the seven who were “called.” City Clerk Davis has the only real snap, and being the only pebble on that beach is sure to go in. He well deserves a unanimous vote. The polls will be opened at 9 o’clock and closed at 4p. m. Justice Graham will preside, with Messrs. W. D. Haynes, F. A. Hooper and J. T. Cot ney as managers, and Messrs. E. A. Nisbet, E L. Guerry and E. J. Mc- Math as clerks. Now go to the polls and help the voters pick the winners in this race. Polls open at 9 o’clock and close at 4 o’clock p.m. For Sale.
